. on there you may be able to see an f.b.i. tag. this is what is left of what caused the chaos in boston. gail russell reporter broke this news and dale, how do you know what this is and how did you get it? >> shepard, we got this through sources who verified for us that these are actual crime scene photos from the first bomb from monday's boston marathon bombing. >> shep: tell me what we're looking at here. whether i look at it, i can't tell what it is? >> what you are seeing is an ordinary, everyday pressure cooker. they are very common in the stores, but also they are common for bomb making. you also see a black padded either knapsack or duffel bag that my sources say the bomb was carried in. there is also small bearing type pellets, and some sort of put at this holding them together. it was part of the shrapnel that mates it deadly. >> so investigators had this from the early minutes. the people took the pictures. what you are saying they took pictures of this. since then they have been analyzing it. looking at all the materials, trying to trace them back to the source and helping them tra

it remarkable. during the briefing today. we're awaiting on the f.b.i. in a couple of minutes. the briefing earlier today when they appealed at least half a dozen times, openly and publicly for the public's help. if you have a picture, if you you have video. they wanted to talk to you. if you have seen anything, they wanted your information. i thought it was telling because they were so public and outward with this. they were at the airport at logan international asking people that had flown on the race to show it to police before they got on the planes. >> bob: can you give us an update on the saudi student and they looked in his apartment and there was an interview by his roommate. they were in there for four or five hours. do you anything more about that? >> reporter: i can tell you this. he is not a suspect. he is 20 years old from saudi arabia near meca. he is here studying english. he was living in a suburb and he was in the hospital with burns. he cave consent for police to go into his apartment. they did and came out 2:00 in the morning with large bags of evidence, but we don't beli
exploded yesterday at the world's premiere marathon. the f.b.i. appealed to the public came this evening. the agent in charge, richard deslauriers asked the public for leads and photographs and summed up the investigation this way. >> at this time, there are no claims of responsibility. the range of suspects and motives remains wide open. >> pelley: investigators say this was one of the most photographed areas in the country yesterday. but did anyone capture the image of the person or persons who planted the bombs that killed at least three people and wounded more than 170 including spectator leann yawny. >> i'm alive. and being so close to the blast, you know, it could have turned out way worse. >> pelley: she was one of the lucky ones. 27 of the wounded remain in critical condition this evening. among the dead, eight-year-old martin richard of dorchester, massachusetts. and late today another of those killed was identified. 29-year-old krystle campbell of medfordford. we've also learned more about the two bombs planted near the finish line. they were filled with nails and ball bearings
director of the f.b.i. is with us. john, what have you been learning? >> well, they're looking very hard at that piece of closed circuit television security camera video. they've gotten a individual who they're interested in because he's carrying two backpacks. now you know how early it is and how information will shift and change and that's an important caveat but when you have two devices possibly contained in backpacks and you have an image of somebody moving before that carrying two backpacks that could be someone who's got his backpack and one he's carrying for another runner or that could be a suspect. so what they're doing now between the f.b.i. and boston police department is they're looking at his direction of travel. the shot that they have of him is not really identifiable. it's from behind. so they're scoping out the network of cctv cameras trying to figure out from the direction he's coming from what other cameras would he have passd? can they identify the same individual this time from the front wand a face. and then based on that look and whatever other cameras they can se
-new details in the f.b.i.'s investigation. first let's go downtown in boston. >> the sun is just beginning to rise over the city of boston, a much different city, a quiet city this morning, almost eerie to see boylston street behind me and this morning it still looks like a marathon happened here yesterday. streets are still a mess, papers are everywhere. that area is in lockdown. the business district not reopening today. that remains a crime scene as a terrorist investigation continues right now here on the streets of boston. this event happened just a little bit before 3:00 yesterday afternoon. that's when really the height of the marathon, the elite runners had long since finished about two hours earlier. so the people that were crossing the finish line were many of them charity runners, were here to raise money for leukemia, for the liver foundation, for all the various things that people raise money for in the course of the 26 miles, plus they're running. as they were crossing the finish line, it was family members that were waiting there at the finish lines. so the area was packed w
. >> back now with continuingith coverage out of boston. the f.b.i. is leading the investigation of two bombs that exploded at the boston marathon it's being treated as an act of terrorismful a source confirmsfm that a saudi national here on a student visa is questioned but at this time he is not considered a superintendent. s he isup a person of interest. police officers searched an apartment in a boston suburb saying a search warrant related to the attack has been issued. >> we saw dozens of ambulances on one street. cars on another street. fire trucks just a lot going on. >> and really put a damper on the whole experience. >> wow. the principal authorized a robo call to let people know he was all right. >> another local man in the boston marathonment "the washington post" he had it tour was not injured in the explosions. err this morning we talked toexo him by phone from boston to get his account of chaotic aftermath. >> i finished the race a littlet bit before the bombs went off and i was kind of in the -- i te was about two blocks away. i had already picked up my gear bag and when
or domestic. what will the f.b.i. do in these early hours? what kind of evidence are they looking for? >> what you're looking at here, scott, is a different kind of marathon which is all hands in boston. the entire joint terrorism fact force and the entire rest of the boston field division of the f.b.i. have been called in and they have set up a case management system that will track every lead that's coming in. it will be searchable so that they don't have anything fall through the cracks and they're going to start running at this. they'll look at those bomb fragments, calls from the public, what comes into e-mail and they'll be looking at all of the intelligence from the 16 agencies and the intelligence community to see can we get a leg up and a direction. and, of course, they'll start with that individual they're talking to. >> pelley: john miller, thank you very much. some of the best coverage has come from our cbs news affiliate wbz, they have been on the story since the moment of the first explosion. jonathan elias was there when the bombs went off. john, can you tell us what you saw? >>
marathon. i've spoken to f.b.i. director muller and secretary of homeland security and they're mobilizing the appropriate resources to investigate and to respond. i've updated leaders of congress in both parties and we reaffirmed on days like this that there are no republicans or democrats. we're americans. >>> i've always spoken with the governor and the mayor and made it clear that they have every single federal resource necessary to care for the victims and counsel the fanl families. boston police, firefighters and first responders, as well as the national guard responded heroically and continue to do so as we speak. it's a reminder that so many americans serve and sacrifice on our behalf every single day without regard to their own safety in dangerous and difficult circumstances. and we salute all of those who assisted in responding so quickly and professionally to this tragedy. >>> we still do not know who did this. or why. and people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all of the facts. but make no mistake. we will get to the bottom of this. and we will find out who did thi
they discovered unexploded and defused. john miller, former assistant director of the f.b.i. is our senior correspondent. you have been talking to your law enforcement sources all afternoon. john, what do you know? >> well, there is an individual who who is in custody. now, i want to proceed very carefully from here on out. he's in custody, which means he's not free to go. he's not under arrest, he's not charged. he is a saudi national who was near the scene of the blast when the blast happened he began to run. now, in context, a lot of people began to run. a civilian who thought this individual was acting suspiciously chased him down and tackled him and then turned him over to boston police saying "i saw this guy hanging around over there acting suspiciously and then he ran." that may mean a lot; it may mean nothing at all. but authorities that i've spoken to, sources who are being briefed on this say he's being fully cooperative, he's denying any involvement in this act. >> pelley: so this has been three hours that this has happened. a lot of things are going to be thrown out the window
federal acts from the f.b.i. -- agents from the f.b.i., homeland security and a list of other agencies conducted searches of some nearby buildings looking for clues and possible suspects. three people, including an 8- year-old boy, were killed in the explosions. more than a hundred other people are injured. >> the explosions went off about 15 seconds apart and were about 100 yards from each other. more than a dozen people remain hospitalized in critical condition. president obama vowed to find those responsible for the bombings and to bring them to justice. the president never mentioned the word terrorism but the fbi is treating the explosions as a terror act. no group so far has claimed responsibility for the blasts. >>> cities around the country have increased police patrols in light of these bombings. the secret service has spannedded its security perimeter on the white house as well. and police in london are getting very strict with their security because the london marathon is coming up this sunday. >> wusa9's delia goncalves is live in the satellite center with more on the respon
of the morning coming up and at f.b.i. news conference coming up in 20 minutes. now a check on the forecast. >> meteorologist mike nicco is here with calmer conditions. >> calmer outside right now. and dry as you look at live doppler 7 hd. we have the potential for wind through the cartinez strait, you can see the areas in tan leading into the central valley where the fastest wins are today from 9:00 this morning until 5:00 during the afternoon hours, with wins up to 35 to 40 miles per hour and be sustained from the northwest at 20 to 30 miles per hour. 22-mile-per-hour wind at fairfield and 26 gusts in santa rosa the fastest, gusting to 21 in novato and only ten at sfo and 18 at half moon bay and you can see by 9:00 those are going to become faster and more uniform. now the next 12 hours 7:00 this morning around the bay at 45 and mid-60's by noon and upper 60's and breezy around the bay shore. as we head inland it will not be so breezy, we are cooler in the 30's and 40's and in the low 60's by noon and upper 60's by 4:00 and the coast breezes pick up in the mid-to-upper 50's through the af
, surveillance photo, the f.b.i., the police can circulate that there among all police agencies, perhaps among spectators how much they want to tip their hand i don't know and that could lead them somewhere. so these are big developments. they're now willing to say outside they believe these were bombs. number two, they think they were probably secreted in some kind of trash can and that makes sense because after the explosions we heard about the warning to stay away from trash cans and very importantly the third device which we know about, an unexploded device we are told has been recover intact. that was in a trash resentable near the finish line. so these are preliminary bits of evidence, scott, but in the end it might help point us in the right direction. >> pelley: bob, thank you very much. so that would be our first law enforcement confirmation that explosive devices were behind these explosions in boston and apparently this attack was meant to be even graver than it has been. two bombs, apparently have exploded but at least one other has been discovered by police and, in fact, we're --
or international. the attorney general has also been in direct contact with the f.b.i. director who has spoken with president obama this afternoon. fox news told f.b.i. agents are focused now on the methodical work of pulling clues from the marathon route what, is now a crime season the residue from the explosions to determine the type of explosive, the origin of the explosives, and whether the devices were made by the same person. in other words, they carry the bomb maker's signature. also the type of detonator, as well as whether they contain any shrapnel. that will be a critical clue. they're also pulling the surveillance camera video. based on conversations with sources this afternoon, initially what they reported to us is that there was no threat information or chatter in advance of what happened at the marathon today or that it was a target. >> thank you. as we look live at the white house briefing room. again, the president ready to speak in a few minutes. we may get more information there. you just saw some video there. that's from the boston globe. i want to toss back to that video an
. >> reporter: overnight, the f.b.i. did search an apartment in a boston suburb and conspiracy theories grew online, some of them involving a shaod doey figure seen yesterday on a roof top. but for now officials said they have no suspects and no motive. instead the f.b.i.'s special agent in argeaid the cas wide open. >> this will be a worldwide investigation. we will go where the evidence and the leads take us. we will go to the ends of the earth to identify the subject or subjects who are responsible for this despicable crime and we do everything we can to bring them to justice. >> reporter: federal agents also set the record straight on some widely circulated misinformation about the bombings. >> to dispel any rumors, there were rumors floating around that there were up to seven devices at one point. that's not true. i think that happened as a resu of some suspect packages that were disrupted. but we only have two devices that we're aware of and both of those devices were the ones that were -- that did the damage and were involved in the explosives incident. >> reporter: evidence recovered
we'll get to the bottom of it. >> do you feel the f.b.i. and other counterterrorism officials have necessary tools at their disposal? >> i think our law enforcement will have all the resources they need and technology and tools they need to get to the bottom of it. thanks, everybody. >> ok, ready? good morning. actually, it's not such a good morning for many people. we'd like to begin by acknowledging that for many families, not just in boston but throughout the country and perhaps the world, when they woke up today it was a far different day from monday morning and so let us begin by first sending our thoughts and prayers to all the victims and the families that were impacted by the vicious bombing that occurred in boston yesterday. r thoughts and prayers are extended to each and every one of them. i believe the president said it best when he said we're going to get to the bottom of this. we expect that as americans, our government will do everything possible to protect us. that's the foremost duty of any democratically elected government is to protect its people. so we will get t
. today all of that remains but the investigation moves ahead led by the f.b.i. but with contributions not only from boston, massachusetts, but also of agencies of federal government looking for the person or persons who did it. and asking the question: what do boston and other cities do to make their citizens as safe as possible? we begin with the president of the united states who spoke this morning at 11:30. >> any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror. what we don't yet know, however, who is who carried out this attack or why, whether it was planned and executed by a terrorist organization foreign or domestic or was the act of a ma malevolent individual? >> rose: this afternoon there was a press difference by governor patrick and state and local officials, including f.b.i. officials in charge of the investigation. >> at this time there are no claims of responsibility. the range of suspects and motives remains wide open. importantly the person who did this is someone's friend, neighbor, coworker or relative. we're asking anyone who may have heard
at abc7news.com. at 6:30 f.b.i. will hold a briefing for us and abc7 news will carry a special report with a gma team anchoring that bringing the latest at 6:30. >> from the south bay this morning, we have a hazardous material situation at a pg&e transformer. thousands of gallons of oils leaking but it is being contained. we will bring you the latest information on this as it becomes visible. >> a lot going on this morning and not the least of which the winds are die down. mike nicco? >> they did come overnight as we expected but we could pick up this afternoon. areas in tan including the cartinez strait and the democrat that communities where we have the fastest wind starting at 9:00 this morning, ramping up all the way through 5:00 and they could gust define 35 and 43 miles per hour and they will be sustained from the northwest at 20 to 30 miles per hour. as far as right new our fastest wind gusts in fairly at 22, and santa rosa at 26 and 18 in novato and half moon bay and starting off in the 30's and 40's and maybe 50 around san francisco and in the 60's away the coast by noon and
and woman power necessary to put all the information together that's something the f.b.i. can do well. unfortunately in the past in these investigations federal law enforcement use it as a one way street. they'll take information from the locals and they won't share anything. from watching the press conference i think they're will be the kind of sharing back and forth that needs to occur in order to advance the investigation. >> what do you make of the reports from seen year law enforcement that there was no chatter about this leading up to the event? >> because this was a domestic event if there was any chatter that was international it doesn't necessarily mean that it they were prepared to share it with the local law enforcement. i think that will be one of the other interesting stories to follow in the coming days. because in the past the f.b.i. has been very effective at detecting internationally and domestically activities before they occurred. this one clearly got through all the safety nets and it is you know this clearly involved more than one person. >> and that's what i was
the f.b.i. has already reached and that is -- that is the nature of and the focus of their investigation. >> this was a heinous and cowardly act, and given what we now know about what took place, the f.b.i. is investigating it as an act of terrorism. >> bill: and the president says he we all know what an act of terrorism is and why this qualifies. >> anytime bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror. >> so the latest we know three dead from the double bombing there at the finish of the boston marathon an 8-year-old boy, a young 29-year-old spectator, woman spectator who just came there to see the runners cross the finish line and a chinese nationalist graduate student who has not yet been identified who, again, was there among the spectators. three dead, 140 wounded, probably a couple of dozen of whom, if not more were looking for the exact -- looking for the exact number actually lost their limbs, lost legs because of the force of this -- of these blasts. all the fbi can tell us, as rick delaura does, the makin
. >> the boston bombings. the f.b.i. served a search warrant in suburban boston. authorities combed an apartment building but will not say what they are looking for or how this home is connected to the investigation. so far they don't have anyone in custody for the attack but the f.b.i. is tracking several persons of interest. the two bombs killed at least three including an 8-year-old boy who went to hug his father. that child has been identified this morning as martin richard. the 145 people have been injured and 15 are critical this morning. for the latest we go to abc7 news' reporter live in boston. >> good morning, a difficult morning here in boston one of many difficult oranges to -- mornings to come trying to return to work after the city was rocked by bombs. this morning, thecy of boston is on heightened areporter 24 hours after terror were arrested. thousands of running in the marathon and a few yards from the finish line at 2:50 the first bomb explodes. >> multiple people down. i don't know what the cause is. stand by. >> chaos ensued amid the white smoke seconds later, another explosi
miller is a former deputy director of the f.b.i. he's joining us right now. john, you've been talking to your law enforcement sources all afternoon. what do you know? >> well, either things are going really well or this is going to be very challenging and that hangs on this individual they have in custody. so let's go back over that. how does this happen? it happens that the first device goes off, the second device goes off and somebody who's noticed this individual saw him acting in a way that they thought was suspicious. they see him running away from the device. now, a reasonable person after an explosion would be rubbing away. but this person had noticed them before. this is a civilian, now. chases him down, tackles him, turns him over to the boston police. the individual who is being looked at was suffering from a burn injury. that means that person was pretty close to wherever this blast went off but not so close as to suffer the serious injuries that other people did. he is in custody. authorities tell me he's being fully cooperative means he's answering all their questions, he
typically does the f.b.i. work with other countries. i assume the video has gone global by now? >> i assume it has. they work closely with the border up in canada as you are referring to. i do think that the individuals most likely have gone out of the area, i think starting to look through videos and if they thought they had safety where they were. they would have high taled it out of there. and looking outside of the country would be important. there is a number of things that the f.b.i. is looking for. i am hopeful and i think it is a stunning development in the case. >> all right. we want to thank you for joining us on the program tonight. bill daley former f.b.i. and agency. we want to direct your attention you can look at it on foxnew it is.comwith bret baier is next. so we are looking at the video here. greg, you mentioned stuff
that need to be collected and cat hrogz, packaged and da da catalogued, eventually transported to the f.b.i. for analysis. they have a particular section that is called the t-dac, it is the terrorist explosive device analytical center. they have highly trained individuals who have seen a lot of improvise eddie vices both domestically and internationally >> we saw images of balance bearings the other day. -- ball bearings the other day, maybe evidence of a circuit board. perhaps there was a zipper that purchase jived the bombing. how does that -- survived the bombing. how does that all fit together and where do you start on that? >> the ball bearings the significance of those really is the addition of shrapnel to a device. when the device explodes adds additional material which can travel through the air at a high rate of speed causing injury to individuals as well as physical destruction to inch and ta math objects. the use of electron cal components can be used in a variety of different ways to initiate a device and individuals will have to make a determination if those electronic componen
this. pelley: but they're still at the starting line. >> the f.b.i. is investigating it as an act of terrorism. >> pelley: john miller, bob orr and elaine quijano have the latest including what we now know about the bombs. we've learned the identities of two of the dead, a woman and an 8-year-old. jeff glor on martin, the boy who put a face on the tragedy. dr. jon lapook tells us how the youngest of the wounded are being treated tonight. and don dahler on the stories survivors are telling. >> everybody was just spectacular. the most well organized response i've seen in my entire life. captioning sponsored by cbs >> this is the cbs evening news with scott pelley reporting tonight from boston. >> pelley: good evening. no motive, no suspects, and the f.b.i. is now asking for help to identify the marathon bomber. they found a lot o
with their financial affairs, the v.a. sends their name to the f.b.i. and they go on a nics list. and all of a sudden that takes away their second amendment right to own a gun. and it says that be in that lives in that house -- so it could be a spouse, it could be a child, it could be an adult child, for that fact -- also cannot own a firearm because the -- the -- the ruling says there can't be a firearm in th the -- in the -- in the residence. clearly, an appropriate determination if a veteran or any other american is found to be a harm to themselves or has a -- a mental disability, that we would all agree should disqualify them from gun ownership. now, let me say for the purposes of my colleagues and for the american people, this is not the standard that we currently apply at the veterans administration. we look at a veteran who's served his country and we say, you can't balance your checkbook so we're going to assign a fiduciary to you to balance your checkbook. you can't own a firearm. think about this. the fiduciary may be the spouse and all of a sudden that name goes to the nics list. why? beca
. the united states of america is by adam, an ed american al qaeda on the f.b.i.'s most wanted list who taunts america and says this, you can see it on buzz feed, america is absolutely awash with . sily attainable firearms large capacity clips. you can get them even without ny identification. this from the most wanted on the f.b.i. list. we need to vote in the united states congress. if these young children had the courage to go after their assailant, if the teachers stepped in the way to protect, does congress have the will and the courage to stand up and merely do what it was elected to do? cast a vote in both chambers. cast a vote on behalf of the american people. cast a vote on behalf of these children, on behalf of these parents who have come here to besiege the united states its ess only to do responsibility, to do what we .ake the oath of office for 92% of the american people believe that we need universal background checks. we have to make sure that our body, both the senate and house, take up this legislation. in the aftermath of yet another tragedy on patriots day, the most patriotic
came in was call director mueller at the f.b.i. to get an update on this. because obviously we -- there no familiar in america -- family in america that wants justice than the state department family, believe me. so i wanted to know where we are. and i think we are making progress. now, there's video as you-all know. we have identified people. and they are building a case. we are going through the tedious, laborious, and very difficult process of gaining evidence from the part of the country which is dangerous. and working in a place where the standards are different and the expectations are different. we are working through that. but i can guarantee you this. i think all of you know because of bob mueller's service, and peoplera years that passed a law to allow him to serve, there is no more dedicated or capable leader of the f.b.i. and there is nobody more committed to do this. i have confidence in that. i also have confidence in something else. this president of the united states made it clear once before that he would do what was necessary to bring somebody to justice. and
adjudicated mentally ill by the state of virginia. but those records were never transmitted to the f.b.i. to be included in a background check. and we know that the shooter in tucson fail a drug test -- failed a drug test, a disqualifying fact for somebody to be able to legally purchase firearms given a background check, but that information was never transmitted to the f.b.i., and so the few son shooter was not -- and so the tucson shooter was not prevented from buying weapons, even though he should have been disqualified if the background check system had been working the way it should. i believe the most appropriate response to the recent mass shootings tshootings is to maket our current laws involving mental illness, drug use, mental health adjudications are enforced more aggressively and more efficiently. but, at the same time, while we're trying to find a solution to these problems and not just engage in meaningless symbolism, we should not be making it harder for law-abiding citizens to exercise their constitutional rights under the second amendment. we can and we should embrace r
